As reports of massive job creation broke on Friday, the mainstream media praised the economic growth that comes a little over a year into President Trump’s tenure. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the U.S. economy added 313,000 jobs in February, its best month since July 2016.

CNN’s Christine Romans called it the “best job creation in some time,” pointing out that job creation in 2018 has been “really strong.”

Beyond job creation, more people are looking for jobs, keeping the unemployment rate steady at 4.1 percent. “People are hearing that there are jobs again, and there have been jobs for a few years now, and they’re coming back in,” Romans said.

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” was surprised by the growth, pointing out that experts were predicting only 200,000 jobs added:

“More Americans are actually out there looking for jobs,” MSNBC’s Dominic Chu reported. The MSNBC analyst pointed out that retail, professional services, and manufacturing jobs all grew at phenomenal rates.

Joe Scarborough said it “was a month of good news.”

And MSNBC’s sister network, CNBC, called the report “awesome.”

“These are great numbers,” one panelist said. “This is crazy.”

CNBC cited the growing industrial sectors in America, pointing out that much of the growth was in high paying jobs.
